    Wednesday, May 29th, 7-9pm - Discussion on Community Agreements

     After two and half years of leaning into anti-racism work it's time to revisit how we engage. How do we create room for honest conversations about race, making space for discomfort and un-learning, and at the same time practicing together with fearlessness? 

    Join a collaborative process to build on what we've established and guide how we move forward. These are some of the themes we have included, and would appreciate your input, in person at our meeting: practicing care and consent, reducing harm, respecting pronouns and identities, speaking from the "I", understanding confidentiality, building trust, and lastly, leading with love.


    About Race, Racism, and Racial Inequality

    The purpose of these meetings is to create a safe and brave space for honest conversations about race.  Held monthly, this gathering is an open forum facilitated by the organizers with prompts for reflection, sharing, and discussion on the issues of race within our community and society.  

    The gathering is structured on shared, consensual community agreements where we meet separately in affinity groups, which are self-identified People of Color and White Allies, and together as a community. Through sitting practice, dyads, and group discussions, we examine our personal experience, habitual patterns, and assumptions. There will also be a discussion of dharma view and practices to work compassionately and skillfully with each other and through difficult conversations.    

    Schedule includes:

    • Sitting Practice

    • Affinity Group Breakout Sessions

    • Aspirations and Conclusion
